Upgrade Procedure

  • Backup your existing data using NIM Console > Administration Tool > Statseeker Administration > Backup/Restore
  • Ensure the backup is stored on a remote location, not locally on the existing Statseeker server
  • Note: for more information on the backup process see Backup and Restore.
  • Login to Statseeker as an Admin user
  • Select Console > NIM Console and confirm that:
    • The current installation is version 5.2, or higher
    • The current user is admin, or is a user with the Admin role
    • This information is displayed at the bottom of the NIM Console

  • Select Administration Tool > Statseeker Administration > Software Upgrade
  • Click Edit (upper-right)
  • Click Choose File, browse to the location of the stored Statseeker Upgrade image, select it, and click Open
  • Click Upload

A progress bar will be displayed to map the progress of the upload process.

Once the ISO has been uploaded a series of checks against the upgrade requirements are run. In addition, a dry-run of the upgrade process is conducted to highlight any potential impacts on your installation resulting from contents of the upgrade.

The results of the upgrade checks are presented, and any items marked with a warning or failed icon should, prior to proceeding with the upgrade, be reviewed and addressed as needed. For details on changes resulting from the thresholds upgrade, see Statseeker v5.2 Thresholds Update and Migration.

Note: there is no requirement to complete the upgrade process at this point and no changes have been applied to your existing Statseeker installation. You can take the time to review and address failed/warning items as needed and return to the upgrade when ready. If you have any questions regarding the status of any of the upgrade checklist items, please contact Statseeker Technical Support.

If the checklist presents items that require attention you can click on the associated doc link to view details. Some of these items can be addressed prior to proceeding with the upgrade and others advise a review of the affected element (threshold, report configuration, etc.) post-upgrade.

A complete, detailed report can be downloaded and used as a reference for these items and as a record of the changes made to affected elements as a result of the upgrade process. To download the upgrade report:

  • Click Download Report for an HTML report, or Download Report (gz) for an archived version of the same HTML report

Highlighted items in the upgrade checklist can be addressed and the pre-upgrade check re-run as desired.

When you are ready to proceed with the upgrade:

  • Click Complete Upgrade

If any warning or failed/error items remain in the pre-upgrade checklist a warning dialog is displayed asking you to confirm that you wish to proceed with the upgrade.

  • If you are happy to proceed, click Yes

The upgrade will now commence, during this process the Statseeker server will be unavailable.


Post-Upgrade Checks

There are a number of checks to be performed once the upgrade process is complete:

  • Confirm new version
  • Confirm License Details
  • Review upgraded Thresholds and Alerts
  • Re-apply any SCS packages that the Upgrade dry-run indicated would be removed by the upgrade process


Confirm new version
  • Return to the NIM Console and refresh your browser to confirm that the upgrade process is complete and you are running an updated Statseeker version.

The installed version number is displayed below the report list and filters.


Confirm License Details
  • From the Admin Tool select General > License Key

This will display your current license details.

Review those details and, if you require any changes to License Tier, Device, Interface or Custom Data limits, or feature set, please contact Customer Service.


Re-apply SCS Packages

The dry-run of the upgrade, which you will have run prior to the upgrade itself, will have highlighted any potential impacts to existing Statseeker Custom Script (SCS) packages.

  • Review your installed SCS packages after the upgrade and re-apply as required
